Huntsman a spider? 7 politicians with Google problems (besides Rick Santorum).

Members of the gay community responded to GOP presidential candidate Rick Santorum's less-than-flattering words about them by getting revenge on Google.

Here are seven other politicians whose names yield curious search results.

1. Former Utah Gov. John Huntsman

Googling only Mr. Huntsman's last name could be an arachnophobe's nightmare. That's because Huntsman is a family of spiders so named because of their speed and method of hunting. They're also called giant crab spiders, if that gives you any indication of their grisly appearance.
